Jimmy Carl set list: Yalaha Bakery, Aug. 17

Yes, it was Woodstock day for Jimmy Carl at Yalaha Bakery, with plenty of songs tied to the festival’s 50th anniversary. Like the original Woodstock, there were a few challenges from the elements and also A LOT of love and positive vibes from the folks in the courtyard.

This was Jimmy Carl’s final solo slot for the summer and he has enjoyed the experience immensely. As always, many thanks to Anne Marie and Juergen Klumb for the many opportunities. Yalaha Bakery is one of the area’s quiet gems.
